OUR YEAR-LONG COMMITMENT

Pride isn’t a one-month campaign, but a yearlong celebration!

THIS ISN’T JUST A CAMPAIGN FOR US

LGBTQ2AI+ Support is not a month-long campaign for us, but an ongoing commitment to give authentic support to a community.

As allies in 2021, we honour the LGBTQ2AI+ community of past, present and future, by dedicating this year’s campaign to the Underground Ballroom Culture of the 80’s and 90’s that became a safe place for LGBTQ2AI+ to strut their proud artistry, express themselves and celebrate!



IT GETS BETTER - To help create Safe Spaces, we have an ongoing partnership with It Gets Better Canada, helping provide LGBTQ2AI+ youth with safe spaces. We will be donating the first $25’000 of profits from the collection to It Gets Better Canada.

SAFE SPACE SESSIONS - To further this commitment, we created the Safe Space Sessions to celebrate National Coming Out day, and to help create online safe spaces.

PROJECT 10 - Product donation to help LGBQTIA+ youth develop their ability to express themselves!

PROUD ALLIES FOR ALL - This is not a monthlong campaign, but a yearlong celebration of the LGBTG+ Community. Building a global network of PROUD ALLIES, so everyone can be supported as they deserve to be. LEARN MORE

BALLROOM 101

Ballroom has a rich and storied history. Get the rundown here.

Ballroom is an underground LGBTQ2AI+ subculture that originated in New York City in the late 80s and early 90s.

LGBTQ2AI+ individuals began organizing in defiance of the rising discrimination they faced as a result of their identities, thus safe spaces and occupations in society were limited, as well as laws prohibiting them from wearing clothes associated with the opposite gender.

The Ball acted as a safe haven, free from the prejudice and violence being directed at the community, specifically black and brown trans women, as a result of the AIDS epidemic at-large during this time.

Through the Ballroom, members of the community could express themselves freely and safely, forming "Houses" made up of their chosen family. Ballroom and its culture, vernacular, and rituals were created by black and brown queer individuals and trans women.

This space belongs to them.



"The ballroom scene is a safe space because it makes room for LGBTQ+ and rallies to explore and expand themselves where society and/or family said they couldn't. It creates a sense of family, unity, networking, community and rebuilds the belief that we are not the enemy but each other's ally."

- House of Miyake Mugler

"Houses have long been a space for marginalized folk to create and perform without approval from white supremacy. This community gives space for freedom of expression through dance, performance, and many other categories - while providing a container for QTBIPOC folk to regularly gather, socialize and learn."

- The Kiki House of Gvasalia

"The balls are a space created by and for misfits, who instead of fit (according to social norms) are finding a way. Since ballroom's conception, the balls and our respective houses offer us (Black and POC, Queer and Trans people) the safety and comfort to grow as individuals and artists, bond with like-minded people, compete with each other in the FAB-EST way imaginable and celebrate ourselves."

- The Kiki House of Siriano

House of Miyake Mugler(@miyakemugler.official)

We are the first all Butch Queen house surviving 30+ years of ballroom. Many of the scene's top Icons and Legends started in the House of Miyake Mugler and maintain the same drive for excellence that we instilled in them in their new houses. We are also an expected presence in the scene especially for categories such as Face, Fashion and Performance

The Kiki House of Gvasalia(@houseofgvasalia)

Houses have long been a space for marginalized folk to create and perform without approval from white supremacy. This community gives space for freedom of expression through dance, performance, and many other categories - while providing a container for QTBIPOC folk to regularly gather, socialize and learn. Without this event the creativity and social camaraderie would not be able to fully display itself. We as a house believe all of us can appreciate the unappreciated mastery of ballroom leaders as important revolutionary figures in the movement for equality.

The ballroom might be a space where all members of the LGBTQ+ community are welcome BUT we must continue to remember and advocate for those who this community was conceived for.
